Connecting with people. Encouraging positive attitudes. Delivering diversionary activities. All are at the heart of the organization known as Cancer Wellness Connections. Although originally founded in 2006 as Cancer Wellness Spa, the mission of the group remains the same.
When battling cancer through chemotherapy, many people experience unpleasant side effects and face a treatment program that is emotionally, mentally, and physically taxing. The founders of Cancer Wellness Connections— Dr. Cynthia Angel, Dr. Brent DuBeshter, and Eileen Grossman, recognized the importance of providing diversionary activities to help the people undergoing these treatments.
